I always love it when I order new glass, or try new combinations, and this is what happens when I do both.
This first picture shows the glass before I cut it and place it in the kiln for its first firing.
The second picture is after the glass is removed from the kiln and I am cutting it into pendant and earring size pieces.
After cutting the glass, I grind each piece to fine tune the shaping and take care of any rough edges.
The pieces go back in the kiln for a second firing, this time to fire polish the pieces.
Here they are after the second firing. Next I will drill holes in the glass – no picture of the boring drilling holes part.
After the holes are drilled, I wire wrap the pieces with Sterling Silver and create my unique bails. Here is the finished product.
